it's not on budget as long as it will last ages and is quiet.

Why not go custom watercooling? If not, then go with the Noctua NH-D14!! Just make sure it can fit.

I think that there are too many problems with water cooling, I dont want to burn anything or invest into a new cooler 2 years down

The Noctua NH-D14 is one of the better air coolers out there. I haven't heard much about the Phanteks cooler but by design it looks to be very close to that of the Noctua. I recently used the Corsair H100 and that thing is a beast if you are looking for a closed loop water cooler but I think I would rather go with the Noctua next time.

Is there any diference in performance betwen Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK, Noctua NH-D14 and Corsair H100? As I understand ZALMAN CNPS12X is not that good. As well Will they fit Rampage4 ext. With Gskills RAM with heatsinks. These look huge.
